Hi everybody and happy Sunday. As another week opens its jaws to swallow us whole (I hate Mondays) I wanted to update you on a few things.
First, and most important, I drew Yamane’s surname out of my attractive hat, and it was Richards, submitted by the lovely and talented, K’s friend K, who thought Richard just the kind of a name someone like Yamane’s dad might have. If I ever write in future about Yamane’s father then his last name will be Richards.
Thanks to everyone who participated and sent in names from the ridiculous to the sublime, 😯 I’m grateful to you all.
Next, I’m halfway through The Family Unit, and I’m still kicking myself for including a kid. Geez. It’s difficult to write kids because mine have these mood swings; sometimes they’re brainiacs and sometimes they’re little savages. It’s hard to write normal children if you’ve never lived with one.
I’m sure that Spring Break (week after next) will either cure me or kill me.
I have gotten word that pretty soon I’ll have some cover art to share, this time for the book Notturno from MLR Press. May I say that it’s a seriously beautiful cover, quite a bit hotter than anything I’ve ever had, and that it’s possible I’ll have to hide it behind a Not Safe For Work cut on LiveJournal?
Finally, Physical Therapy should be available in early May, ePistols at Dawn is scheduled for early July, Notturno‘s release date is still being discussed. Thanks for stopping by.
